Shrimp Cobb Salad

I would imagine that most of you who read this blog subscribe to at least one food magazine. Everyone has their favorite. Mine happens to be Cooking Light. It’s like an old friend to me…always there…dependable…never lets me down :)

When I got the most recent issue and saw this Shrimp Cobb Salad on the cover, I knew I had to have it. Sure enough….during my next trip to the grocery store I picked up some frozen, pre-cooked shrimp and got to work.

Here’s my version. Couldn’t be easier! Since the shrimp are already cooked, it comes together in a snap!

I started by sauteing some garlic and onions in a hot pan. Then added some frozen black beans and some leftover chickpeas, along with the shrimp. I seasoned the whole mixture with lots of paprika and a little cayenne pepper. Some Old Bay also would have been delightful!

When everything was warm, I spooned it onto a big plate full of baby spinach.

I topped the salads with avocado slices, yellow bell pepper strips and some fresh tomatoes!

  7. I have been craving shrimp like mad lately! Whenever I go to restaurants, I always order the cobb salad – not because its healthy (well not like yours anyway) but because it’s oh so delicious. :)

  8. I LOVE cobb salad (although I really love the bacon in it…so I’d have added that if I had any), and I love the shortcut of using pre-cooked shrimp. :) What a great, easy dinner!

  9. looks delish! i subscribe to the food network magazine right now, but have also gotten others before….never cooking light though.

  10. Looks tasty AND pretty! I have to admit the thing I like best about Cooking Light is the section with pretty new gifts/ kitchen stuff towards the front of the mag :) I drool over these stupid things…

  11. HUGE fan of shrimpy salads. This sounds delicious- the avocado is a great touch. I like cooking light and southern living (although I always end up lightening up the southern living recipes ;))
